Just one issue isn't enough

August 29, 2013 

What do we have here? A woman from the 15th Congressional District, Angela Michael, wants to run for the seat of Rep. John Shimkus. Why, you ask? Well, according to Michael, she wants to publicize abortion pictures. She can't do it legally now, but if she runs for Congress she can publish all sorts of graphic pictures.

Why would anyone in his right mind vote for a person who just wants to push her personal agenda for abortion? I want a representative to represent the people of Illinois, not just abortion rights. She should run for a judgeship so she could dwell on one thing.

Our country is messed up already with all the Barack Obama lovers. It's time to think America first, then things will change.

I am against abortion, period. Running for office just to publicize abortion is not the right answer.

The Democratic Party is as guilty for abortion as anyone can be. The Democratic Party has ruled for the last two elections. Are they trying to overturn Roe v. Wade? No.

The welfare line is longer now more than at any time I can remember. Illinois pays for babies the first, second, third, and on and on, then feeds the family until the oldest child can get pregnant and the cycle starts all over again.

We are putting the horse before the cart. Get real and stop all the sexual abuse. No more abortion.
